Unnecessary Wars
 
(0 reviews)  

Australia lost 600 men in the Boer War, a three-year conflict fought in the heart of Africa that had ostensibly nothing to do with Australia. Coinciding with Federation, the Boer war kickstarted Australia's commitment to fighting in Britain's wars overseas, and forged a national identity around it.

Tasmanian-based historian Henry Reynolds shows how the Boer War left a dark and dangerous legacy, demonstrating how those beliefs have propelled Australia into too many unnecessary wars – without counting the cost.
